How can you get your hands on the SAB goodies??

There are THREE different ways of getting your hands on these goodies

Host a party - Have your friends over for a night, if you provide the chocolates and drinks I will provide the entertainment.  You will earn all of the regular benefits of hosting a party plus, if the sales are £150+ you will receive a pack of Silver Glimmer Paper.  Whats more if the sales go over £300 you will receive a free product bundle from the catty of the Madison Avenue Stamp Set, Sycamore Street DSP and the Sycamore Street Buttons and Ribbons.  I have a few dates left in my diary so get in touch and I will book you in.

Also if you place your own order without hosting a party to these totals you will also get all of the benefits.

However, if you cant afford to spend that money then never fear you can still benefit, by spending £45 you can claim one free SAB freebie (£90 two SAB items and so on)

If you would like to do what I do then you can sign up during SAB and get more than before.  Stampin' Up! are rewarding new demonstrators during SAB with an extra 25% of free products in your starter kit.  So you can, for a limited period only, you can choose £162.50 worth of products and only pay £99, you also get a business pack worth £45.  If you want to join it is even easier now because you can sign up on line and if you want any more info then please get hold of me and we can go through it further.

This post will stay at the top until 22nd March when SAB finishes.

Hi Guys

Well Valentines is creeping up on us and will soon be here.

Here is an idea for you that I have seen on my travels around the web.

I have made it using the Heart Framelits from the Main Catalogue.  The flowers were made using the 1 3/4", 1 1/4" and 7/8" Scallop Circle punches with Real Red and Silver Glimmer Paper.  The leaves were made using the Bird Builder Punch.

Don't forget if you place an order of £150 or host a party of £150 you will get the Silver Glimmer Paper free with your Sale-A-Bration goodies.

I hope you like and until next time

Happy Crafting

Another Birthday

Hi Guys

Yesterday was my nieces 10th Birthday.  I cannot believe that she 10 already, she is growing up so fast.

She is changing what she likes and is into almost daily so it was hard to come up with something for the card I made for her.

I made her an owl from Cherry Cobbler Cardstock using the Scallop Circle and Topnote dies for the Bigshot.  I have used the retired 3 heart punch and retired SAB stamp set from last year for the greeting.

Other punches used are the 13/4", 13/8" and 1" circle punches for the eyes, the Curly Label punch for the greeting and the 13/4" Scallop circle punch for the chest.

She loved the card as I hoped she would.  Now I just need to think what I am going to make her for next year!!

I am having a day crafting tomorrow and I am going to be using some of my new product from the Spring/Summer Supplement and some of the fabulous offerings from the SAB brochure from this year, you will love them all they are fab.

Until next time

Happy Birthday

Hi Guys

Well today is my FIL's birthday and I am not sure if he reads my blog or not so I will say happy birthday now and I can show his card as I know he will have it by now.

I have used the cupcake builder punch in Pacific Point and Crumb Cake.  I added Early Espresso chips to the cupcake and then added Crystal Effects to give them some dimension.

For the greeting I have used is Priority Mail which is one of the exclusive hostess sets from the main Catalogue.

Do you see that paper?  Well that is a sneak peak from this years SAB products.  Not long now and you will be able to see all of them in the flesh when you place an order for £45 (you will get 1 free product).  This year is the best SAB yet with it being SU!'s 25th Anniversary!!  You will love it!!

Don't FORGET you only have until the end of January to order from the Autumn/Winter Seasonal catty.  If you want anything from it then please get in touch and I will order it for you and have it delivered directly to your door.

Well until next time

Happy Crafting

Talking Tags

Hi Guys

Stampin' Up! have launched a new product line

With Talking Tag, you can send a gift that is uniquely you. Talking Tag is a message label you can attach to cards, invitations, gifts . . . anything! Personalise birthday cards, gifts or even record quick instructions for a recipe. Now your pictures really can say a thousand words!

How to send a voice message:
  1. Download the FREE TalkingTag™ App on you smartphone from talkingtag.mobi, iTunes® or Google Play™.
  2. Adhere the message tag to your card or gift.
  3. Open TalkingTag™ App and scan the code.
  4. Record your message (recording starts immediately, so make sure you’re ready!).
You will have the opportunity to listen, re-record, cancel, or confirm your message after you’ve completed recording it. Each label allows up to 60 seconds of a greeting, song, or product message.
To play the message, recipients will need to download the app and scan the code.  Messages are saved for two years, so they can listen to it over and over.

How to Buy Talking Tags:
Buy ‘em by the sheet! You get 10 tags for just 9.50 €/£7.25 (item 129723).

Helpful Tips:
  • Adhere Talking Tag to a flat surface, otherwise the scanner can’t read the code.
  • Multiple tags can be attached to one surface, but don’t place them too close together. When scanning a message, you shouldn’t be able to see another code on the screen. 
  • Do not write or place any decoration over the label.
  • Talking Tag has a permanent adhesive and cannot be repositioned once attached to a surface. Attempting to remove it could tear the label, making it impossible to listen to the content.
  • A Talking Tag message label can only hold one message. Once a message is confirmed, it cannot be deleted or re-recorded.

So if you want to buy any then you can email me emmadaye@sky.com or call me 07793972024 (or text me) and I will order some for you.

Until next time

Happy New Year to you all

Hi Guys

Happy New Year to you all.

I have had a little time off whilst I found my mojo.  I managed to find it just before Christmas but was then busy with fairs and commissions for people.

I will show you some of the stuff that I did before Christmas now and will come back with some non Christmassy stuff really soon.


This is a banner that has been made using the Scallop Circle Bigz Die, a rosette made using my Simply Scored Board, The Ornament punch and a retired alphabet die

 Now the inspiration for these came from Becky Roberts over at Inking Idaho.  They are battery operated tealights that I got from fleabay.

 I made these a couple of years ago as my 3D swap at the SU! Convention in UK at Addington Palace.  I have changed them up a bit by using the Champagne glimmer paper from the seasonal catty and the Sweater Trim also from the seasonal catty.

 I saw these on the internet last year but could not get hold of the skinny bags anywhere, but this year we now have them in our main Catalogue, so I could make them.  I don't remember where I saw them first but if anyone knows who the original make of these is then let me know so I can credit them.

Again I don't remember where I saw these but thought they were super cute and had to make them.  Both these and the legs sold extremely well but do take a little while to make.

This is a piccy of my table set up and ready to go at one of my fairs.

I look forward to reading your comments and visiting you to see what you have done.

Until next time

Happy Crafting
